A Domestic High

I just made an apple pie. And not just any apple pie. No, no. The pie I made I made completely from scratch. I sliced my own apples, prepared my own filling, cut together the flour and other ingredients for the crust and everything.

But the "icing on the cake?" I made a lattice-top apple pie. No small feat to anyone who has ever tried to do so. Usually I have such a hard time with the pastry that I have to piece together my crust. But I guess today I was in the "domestic zone" and if there were an Ultimate Housewife contest with an apple pie category I would feel very confident in my entry.

I'm not sure how it will taste - it's baking as I type - but D-A-N-G does it look good! If I ever get my memory card for my camera cleaned up I will certainly be adding a picture. You'll have to see it to believe it!

Lattice-top...impressive! The closest thing I get to "homemade" apple pie is store bought pie crust and canned pie filling!

Mmmmmm. I made an apple crisp last weekend that was divine. I can make excellent crusts, but they are always ugly. Oh, well. I will have to take a lesson next time we get together.

Great work! You surely need a photo for historical purposes. Ah, I can smell it you described it so well...

I just found your blog and I think it's really cute! What an accomplishment to make a pie from stratch. I'm still working on learning to do that myself! :)
